15m. Description from http://wiki.climbing.ie/index.php/Upper_Cliffs

Excellent climbing up the middle of the smooth wall right of Thrust. Despite being well protected where it matters, the route still has a serious feel about it. Start at the centre of the wall below an overlap (with a flake on the right). Climb up to the overlap, and move up leftwards to reach a good flat hold (peg) and continue with difficulty to a narrow ledge. Make thin moves straight up past 2 pegs to reach better holds. Traverse right across the top of a short corner to gain a ledge. Finish up the left- trending diagonal crack. Extending the pegs with slings is unnecessary for the grade.

bik 13 Aug, 2015 Lead RP All gear placed on lead. Had a small crashpad under the first peg just in case. Got a decent offset nut in about 4 meters up. The sketchiest move was clipping the first peg, got right toe jam slightly wrong and it came off just after I clipped the draw into the peg, managed to hang on to good handhold. After clipping the first peg it felt much safer and the rest went alright. Gear: red DMM offest sideways at 4 meters. Pegs. After the crux BD stopper 11 in a deep pocket, then WC rock 3 in a diagonal crack 3 meters below the top.

Shea 22 Jun, 2009 Lead RP Tried it on top rope after hearing a friend was going to lead it. Thought it was ok so went for it. Think i ended up too high and to the left slightly at the end, left myself with a tricky traverse miles above the gear. The hardest moves are well protected, but still feels 'out there'. In retrospect it seems as though I did the E5 finish but without the gear
